People think about money in different ways. Our relationship, interpretation, and interaction with money play a significant role in our money mindset. Your views on money might have been created during childhood, but the people that you are closest to can also affect the way that you feel about it.

So, how do you change the way you think and feel about money? How do you shift your thoughts from a “scarcity” point of view to a mindset based on abundance and gratitude?

Today, I explain what ‘money mindset’ is and share the two primary mindsets most people have regarding money and finances. I explain how your mindset around money impacts your daily financial decisions and ability to achieve your financial goals and explain the difference between a scarcity mindset versus an abundance mindset. I also share how you can assess your money mindset through personal reflection and discuss ways that you can manage your relationship with money through a series of strategies designed to change your money mindset.

“Your life is meant to be lived consciously and joyfully - and a big part of that is being able to manage your relationship with money.” - Tracey Bissett
